Here are some great sandwich ideas that are certain to be a hit with everyone. They taste so good that we’re sure the Earl of Sandwich would approve!

 Panini Sandwiches

1. Panini Sandwiches

“Definitely a big hit!” Just Cher

Many sandwiches feature cheese and meat but this one goes deliciously over the top. Fire up the grill and grab some slices of sourdough bread then begin “building” your sandwich. One half gets mozzarella cheese, salami, pepperoni and pepperoncini pepper. One the other side are provolone and cheddar cheeses, ham and turkey. Put the two halves together and grill your sandwich, brushing each side with melted butter. If you take this to the office for lunch, you most certainly will NOT be dining alone!

Total time: 4 minutes

2. Pickled Tuna-Salad Sandwiches

“Yes!! A favorite sandwich.” Cedarglen

This is a wonderful combination of egg and tuna salads – as a sandwich! Combine the tuna, egg and relish together first before mixing in the parsley and mayonnaise. Add a little salt and pepper and you are ready to slather it onto your favorite bread for a remarkably tasty lunch.

You don’t have to throw a party to prepare this special lunch treat for your kids. Make a butter and strawberry jam sandwich, then a butter and Nutella sandwich. Remove the crusts and cut each sandwich into four triangles.

Whisk together balsamic vinegar, mustard and some more olive oil. Before you arrange the sandwich, use this dressing on the bottom slice of ciabatta. Layer on baby spinach, artichoke hearts, red bell peppers, prosciutto, basil, mozzarella and red onion, then drizzle on more dressing and top with the other slice of bread. Use baking parchment to wrap your sandwich and string to secure it. Leave your wrapped sandwich in the fridge overnight weighed down by a loaded tray. When you’re ready to eat, just slice and serve!

 Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg

Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg - a Perfect Fried Egg Recipe

"This was even better than I had expected. It was fast and easy to make. I used fat free ricotta since that was what I had on hand. Yummy!!" – AJ Vogt

Who says you can’t eat a sandwich with a fork? To prepare, preheat your broiler. Coat both sides of bread with cooking spray and broil on each side until lightly toasted. Gently toss 2 cups of arugula, 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Set your salad aside. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil. With the skillet still over medium heat, crack 4 eggs into the pan and cook for two minutes. Cover and cook for a couple of minutes more until the whites are set. After removing the eggs from the heat, combine 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 3/4 cup park-skim ricotta cheese, 1 ounce of grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme in a small bowl and spread over your toasted bread slices. Add some of your salad and an egg to each of the bread slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Fried Egg Sandwich with Sriracha

"Brilliant. I love runny and not dried up eggs. What a great way to start a day :)" – Penny

It doesn’t get much simpler than this Asian twist on a favorite comfort food! After melting 1 teaspoon of butter in a nonstick skillet, fry the eggs to your preference. We strongly recommend runny! While cooking your eggs, toast your bread and spread 1 teaspoon of butter on one side of each slice. Place a slice of cheddar cheese on each piece of toast and gently place an egg on top of the cheese followed by spinach leaves and as much Sriracha sauce as you can handle! Cover with another piece of toast and you’re finished!

Criminally easy and quick! Just 7 minutes!


Grilled Ham, Egg and Cheese Sandwich

"Can you say breakfast, lunch and dinner?" – Paola

These sandwiches are too tasty to be true! Over medium-high heat, fry 12 slices of pancetta in a large nonstick skillet until you reach the perfect crispiness. Place the pancetta on paper towels but don’t drain or clean the skillet. In an extra-large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add four bread slices topped with 2 slices of provolone. Add a pinch of black pepper and cook until the cheese melts. While your bread is toasting, heat the skillet used for the pancetta over medium heat. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet and cook until your whites are set but keep your yolks runny! Place 6 pancetta slices and 2 fried eggs on top of each of the cheesy toasts. Add chopped onions, Parmesan cheese and 3 basil leaves. Top with another slice of bread and take a big bite!

Good for four or, if you’re hungry, just one! Either way, they’re ready in 20 minutes!

Paula Deen certified so you know it’s delicious! Fry 4 slices of bacon in a small skillet over medium heat until crispy enough to crunch when you bite it. Remove from the pan and place on paper towels. Drain the grease from the skillet but reserve just a bit. Spread butter on both sides of the bread and toast both sides in a separate skillet on medium heat. Mix 4 ounces of cream cheese, 1 teaspoon of minced parsley, and 1 teaspoon of minced green onions in a small bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and spread onto 1 side of each of your toast slices after you have removed them from the skillet. Using the same skillet as you used for your bacon, fry the eggs over medium-low heat breaking the yolk. Place each egg on top of a piece of toast followed by 2 slices of bacon, 2 slices of tomato, and 2 slices of avocado. Cover with another slice of toast.

You’re going to wish you discovered this recipe sooner! In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté your sliced half-onion in 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil. While two English muffins are toasting, move your onions to one side of the pan and crack in 2 eggs with the skillet over medium heat. After 2 minutes, add a slice of Provolone cheese over each egg and continue cooking until the egg whites have set. When your English muffins are toasted, spread the mayonnaise and mustard on one side and gently place an egg onto the muffin. Fry 8 slices of salami for just about 1 minutes per side.

"What a delicious hearty breakfast sandwich!" – Millie

It’s so good, you’re going to want to keep this one a secret! Start by toasting your whole-wheat bun and spread with either mayonnaise or butter. Fry a couple of pieces of bacon in a medium skillet until crisp and set aside on a plate of paper towels. Remove most of the bacon grease but leave a little for taste. Over medium-high heat, cook a minced clove garlic and 1 1/2 cups of minced kale tossing frequently. Add salt to your preferred taste. Keep the kale moist as you cook it by adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Once the kale is tender, sprinkle with white wine vinegar and remove from the pan. Clean the skillet and fry the egg in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. Place the kale on the bottom half of the whole-wheat bun followed by the bacon. Next add the egg and the top bun.

Idaho Sunrise

"Though I am not good at cooking, I tried this recipe and I must say it was simple and kinda awesome. Suggested a restaurant owner to add in the menu :)" - Alex

Forget about the hash browns and have a real potato! Bake your potatoes until they’re almost finished, but not quite. Cut off the top of each potato and scoop out the middle with a spoon. Add a ½ tablespoon of butter into your potato bowls followed by a gently broken egg. Top off with the bacon, your favorite cheese, parsley and a little bit of salt and pepper. Place into an oven at 177 degrees Celsius for about 20-25 minutes. This amazingly simple dish will take a bit longer if you are baking your potato specifically for this, but if you have left over baked potatoes from dinner then it’s even easier!

Simple and tasty in 30 minutes!

Egg Ring Set of 4 Blue

Whole Egg, Bacon and Avocado Quesadilla

Such a quick, healthy and delicious breakfast! Love it :) – Mary

Easy but perfect, you’ll love this quick dish! Cook your bacon to whatever crispiness your heart desires in a skillet over high heat. Remove the bacon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Also remove the excess fat and any black bits from the skillet. On medium heat, place a flour tortilla in the skillet. Arrange avocado slices around the rim of half of the tortilla effectively creating a ring to prevent the egg from leaking. Crack an egg into the middle of the ring and sprinkle with pieces of your bacon, cheese and a bit of salt and pepper. Fold the empty half of the tortilla over and cook until it’s golden and crispy. Flip but be careful not to spill the tasty contents! Cook again to the same golden color and crispiness. Serve while hot with some salsa for spiciness!

Enjoy this in just 20 minutes!

Breakfast Flowers

Who doesn’t love flowers in the morning? Now you can eat them! To make your breakfast flowers, start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Then spray 8 large muffin cups with a layer of oil and put a wonton wrapper into each cup. Add a second wonton wrapper but at an angle so that the edges of the two wrappers create your flower. Sprinkle a teaspoon of grated parmesan cheese into each cup followed by a gently broken egg. Top with diced ham, the sliced shallots and sprinkle with pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until you have golden wrappers and your eggs are set. Enjoy!

Poached Eggs Caprese

"Loved it! This is a definite make-again!" - Cynthia

A tasty twist on eggs Benedict! After boiling 2-3 inches of water in a large saucepan over high heat, reduce to medium-low and add the vinegar and 2 teaspoons of salt. Don’t let it get too hot, just a gentle simmer. On each half of an English muffin, place a slice of mozzarella cheese and a slice of tomato, however thick you would like. Toast in a toaster oven until your cheese is soft and the muffin is toasted. Should only be about 5 minutes. Crack an egg into the bowl and very gently slip the egg into the simmering water. Add the other three eggs in the same manner and poach until your whites are firm and your yolks are thick or approximately 2-3 minutes. Take the egg out of the water using a slotted spoon and remove any excess water with a clean towel. Place the perfectly poached egg onto the English muffin with a spoon fool of pesto on each egg. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and your caprese is ready!
